The Executive Committee and QSuper Group entities have also established policies and procedures to make sure management and staff meet high standards of professionalism and integrity, and comply with industry standards and legal requirements.
The external auditor, the Auditor-General of Queensland, audits the QSuper Fund financial statements in accordance with the Auditor-General Act 2009. The Auditor-General also reviews various aspects of the work performed by the internal auditor, and reviews the QSuper internal risk and compliance programs. The Auditor-General makes recommendations about issues requiring further attention. If any recommendations are made, QSuper Group management, the Audit & Risk Committee and the Board will consider them and then decide what actions need to be taken.
Our culture promotes responsible and ethical behaviour from all staff, and we run regular training to keep these matters top of mind. We encourage employees, and the general public, to report any concerns they have about ethical issues or potential fraud. We have a range of external and internal reporting options available, including reporting to management and a whistleblower hotline.
